I wrote 3D Modeling for Cherry Lake Publishing while I was working for the University-of-Michigan-affiliated elementary after-school program Michigan Makers. This book is an introduction to digital 3D modeling for grades 4 through 8 including step-by-step instructions on how to make basic forms in Google Sketchup.
Cherry Lake Publishing says:
“Learn how to create computer-generated 3D models like the ones used in video games and animated films. Readers will blend their art and technology skills as they learn how to use the program SketchUp. Photos, sidebars, and callouts help readers draw connections between new concepts in this book and other makers-related concepts they may already know. Additional text features and search tools, including a glossary and an index, help students locate information and learn new words.”
